All-in-one payment solution provider OPAY launched its “O-Wallet” mobile payment app at the beginning of February. The Galleria Supermarket in Richmond Hill, ON, is OPAY’s first retail partner.
O-Wallet is expected to help local retailers cater to Chinese tourists as well as international students and new Chinese immigrants to Canada.
At the launch event, Galleria Supermarket presented popular sale items on a “Virtual Store” board where buyers could scan QR codes with their smartphones to make purchases through the O-Wallet app.
Galleria Supermarket has gone live with the mobile payment app at all five of its stores and hopes to benefit from Chinese New Year (February 16) as well as the officially declared 2018 “Year of Tourism” between Canada and China.
